182 Packs of Baseball - Day 139 - Road Trip

I am spending the night in Conway, AR, for back-to-back work-related meetings.  While I chill out in the hotel room, I thought it would be fun to snag a pack of cards to bust open while on the road.  Let's see if the pack-busting fares any better (or worse) on the road than when at home.

I picked a pack of 2012 Topps Series 2 Golden Giveaway from Target:

Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
Carlos Zambrano - Marlins
Alex Rodriguez - Yankees
Garrett Richards - Angels
Joe Savery - Phillies
Sandy Koufax - Dodgers - A Cut Above
Josh Tomlin - Indians - WAHOO!! - Red Border
Juan Abreu - Astros
Brandon Dickson - Cardinals
Derek Lowe - Indians - WAHOO! That's TWO!
Gavin Floyd - White Sox
Zach Britton - Orioles

Well, I was getting worried when the first two cards featured "Carlos" - maybe the whole pack was a special "Carlos" edition. Instead, I pull a VERY cool Koufax die cut, a red border Triber and another Indians card for good measure.  I'm tempted to go back and buy another pack or two or ten...  Tempted, but not giving in. I don't have money falling out my pockets for that kind of thing. Maybe one day.  The road trip was certainly a success in my book!


  1. Ha I work in Conway... Small world...

    1. Seriously!? I don't think I knew that you lived/worked in Arkansas. If I did know it, I had forgotten.
